Checkpoint Update

In April, the Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government took precautionary measures to protect community members and residents from the unknown threat of COVID-19. Security checkpoints were established at all four entrances into the community, and were monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. As of June 13, 2020, there are zero presumed or confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Listuguj (88 consecutive days).

Chief and Council and the Unified Command have monitored and continue to monitor the situation across the bridge and in surrounding areas. Based on the latest Public Health advice, the LMG will move forward with the dismantling of the checkpoints on Monday, June 15th, 2020. The LMG is prepared to reinstall the checkpoints at any time should the situation surrounding COVID-19 in our area worsen.

It’s important that we all continue to do our part in keeping our community, families, and loved ones safe. This is a reminder to continue practicing social distancing, proper cough etiquette and good hygiene practices.
